Yup - I've got the C80 which is exactly the same bar the screen. Also the DSM300 fishfinder module - no radar as of yet.

It is a brilliant bit of kit - lovely clear screen - never fogs and the maps are great. The fishfinder is the best I have ever seen - great display.

Only one little niggle - sometimes it claims to have "lost" the DSM300 - I used to turn off the DSM300 at the power source but I have now found you can reboot it from the menus - just like a bloody PC really!!!

I've been using the e120 for the last year which appart from few features is a similar unit, and I cant praise it enough, absolutly brilliant.

now how can I make enough room on my A frame to mount a radar dome :-)

If you perform a software update you will notice that its not just like a bloody PC...... it is a bloody Microsoft PC!!!!!!

I went into the local raymarine shop and asked to look at the c series, a skinny little man with a bunch of keys on his trousers comes over to me and demonstrates this unit with all whistles blowing. So I agree thatís great Iíll get me one off them, so I pay rub my hands together and walk out of the shop.
Then I post my thread on here and codprawn says about 3d Imaging on the c series, really?
So I call raymarine and they also confirm that the c series doesnít have the memory or power to run this software and that it must be the e series if you wanted 3d imaging.
So I go back to the man who I got it from and say why did you show me an e series and sell me a c series? He replies, no you have looked at an 8in c series and an 12in e series and bought an e series.
I asked to look at the c series and thought I had bought a c series but I have ended up with an e series if that makes sense, sneaky

I am so confused but after speaking with Raymarine Portsmoth, they assured me we have the right equipment being sent to us which is the e series. Confusing,

my brother is a pilot and i think he has just seen 3d mapping and that its for a raymarine in a glass cabinet in west marine and bought it thinking i might like it. ill post what he got when it gets here but i think its the 3D mapping

Thanks codprawn

so my question is now how is the e series?
